Diagram for the volleyball drill 'Passing back and forth with constraints'

A and B play the ball back and forth.

Variation 1: A and B use overhead passes to play the ball. They have to keep their hands above their head the whole time. This constraint forces them to move beneath the ball correctly. They cannot "cheat" by playing the ball in front of their head.

Variation 2: A and B use forearm passes to play the ball. When a player passes the ball, his feet should touch each other. This constraint makes it difficult for the players to compensate using their upper body and forces them to move towards the ball better.

Basics: Forearm pass/bump Basics: Overhead pass Drill type: Cooperating group without net Section: Core I
